Yahoo LSE ETF price divided by 100 even for USD and EUR

Questions about updating prices or transactions in Fund Manager

Postby hyhchan » Sat Jan 27, 2024 12:36 am

Since WSJ is no longer working I switched the quotes to Yahoo. But I noticed that somehow for ETF prices listed on LSE (London), the price module will divide the price by 100, even the ETF is priced in USD or EUR. I know some prices is quoted in GBp and this treatment make sense, but can the quote module distinguish the pricing currency so that it can apply the factor only when needed?

BTW, back in WSJ module the LSE pricing also has issue, but it was the other way around - I need to put a factor of 0.01 to the quote to turn GBp to GBP.

Hello hyhchan,

When using the Yahoo (UK & Ireland) server, any symbol that ends in .L will have its price divided by 100 in order to convert from pence to pounds. You can read some details on this here:

If you don't want that, switch to regular Yahoo instead, which I believe has all the same quotes as Yahoo (UK & Ireland).

Hi Mark,

Actually I am using the yahoo historical server and the program exhibit the same behavior as using the yahoo uk site. I checked and using the yahoo main site does not have this issue but I mainly use the historical quotes to fill the price table (so that I can do it once in a while vs do it everyday)

Any plan on changing this behaviour or I need to change my settings to accommodate this?

Hi Howard,

Good point, yes, the Yahoo (Historical) will also divide any .L symbols by 100 by default. You can either turn this option off globally, so it never divides by 100 for Yahoo (UK & Ireland) or Yahoo (Historical) with the "yahoo_uk" registry option described here:

If you set that to 1 in the registry, it won't do any of the dividing for .L symbols. However, if you want it to divide some, but not others, then you'd have to use the multiplier feature on a per-investment level under "Investment Properties... / Internet Retrieve / Multiple Retrieved Price By:".
